    No, well over the top in my opinion anyway.
    I paid just under 1000 for mine about ten years ago, so I would expect it to be worth in the region of 1000 - 1500 today. I remember the deal was sweetened by the inclusion of a nice 1960s Webley oil can worth about 80 at the time. I believe only about 500 of these pistols were ever produced between 1929 and 1930 when production ceased, possibly in response to a perceived infringement of the Webley patent in force at the time.

    Certus.

    I was thinking along the same lines as you on the price of the Certus, i bought mine 4 years ago approximately and paid 1200 for it and looking at the picture is in about the same very good condition. But if someone is desperate to obtain one for the collection, who knows. Many thanks Brian for your comments.

    Super photos as usual John pity the price labels were all turned over on the first lot.
    That short barrel LP53 would be interesting to cock!

    BTW how's the book coming along?

    Must admit I don't tend to look at the price tickets when I take photos and sometimes I even place them under the pistol to prevent them spoiling the framed shot!

    Book draft is complete with just a few tweaks to the cover to go before I have a proof copy printed. No doubt I'll find some silly errors at the next read through.

    Kind regards,

    John

    Kempton LP53k

    The walther LP53 is actually an LP53K ( Kurtz short ) and is a John Walker co2 conversion which are quite rare .

    rare isprobably an understatement mate John did some great conversations, as does Lawrie..

    Great pics !
    Attended the first Kempton Fair and had a good day. Would love to visit again some day but the distance is a little off-putting just now.

    Thank you Steve,

    My problem was I saw them, photographed them, thought about one of them and it had sold by the time I returned to the stall. Just my luck!

    Kind regards,

    It's a great event, I've never come home empty handed. It's also nice chatting to people who share the same interests.
